At Lawrence School, we recognize homework as a necessary part of our students' educational experience. Through homework, teachers can assess a student’s understanding of material.

But we also recognize that for students with learning differences, hours upon hours of daily homework can be damaging—adversely affecting their home life in many unexpected ways. We believe that when thoughtfully designed, homework promotes responsibility and a healthy home-school connection. Further, we believe that consistent, successful completion of homework enhances a student’s learning experience and helps to strengthen executive function and life skills.

When families join Lawrence School, we like to joke that parents are “fired” from assisting with homework. Our school-wide, research-based homework philosophy states that only previously mastered material can be assigned as homework. Lower School students should be able to complete it independently within 30 minutes (with no parental assistance).
